MetalBite Review by JD on 10/28/2010
Crossing over in metal is a staple now. Combining two or more sub-genres to make something new is a artistic way to keep any music fresh and add new feeling... unless you mix Rap with anything (**Vomit**). I remember back when Metal and Punk started the whole crossover thing, (The Dictators, D.R.I. and others) it was great and fell in love with the harshness. Now there are many artists that mix and match genres with great effect.

Moker is a band that combined two very distinct sub-genres of metal together, Deathcore and Death Metal... then added a little of Thrash and a touch of Blackened elements as well. With strong, yet very brutal melodies that pummel your mind Moker is a band that hits hard, and often.

Songs like the powerful chugging of ‘My World Decays’ to the fury and speeding sonic armageddon of ‘Manic Existence’ they have spawned their own sonic hell. They just don’t speed off 90 miles an hour all of the time, they know when to slow it down and chop your legs out from under you with each note they produce. Add in some top of the line production and this album could be used for military applications.

Moker’s album is nothing short of impressive, verging on leaning towards outstanding. This band from Belgium can really rock, and rock hard as all hell. They have it all - melody, power and cutting speed with intelligence and the purest of passions. Damn, they are that fucking dangerous!.
